Over the weekend, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that zero NFL teams had reached out to Colin Kaepernick following his public workout on November 16th.
“Zero. Absolutely zero. The workout last week did absolutely nothing to enhance the chances that Colin Kaepernick is going to wind up with another team,” said Schefter.
His very public workout remains a hot button topic as it was very evident that he still had an arm that should still be in the league.
Over the weekend, actors Kevin Hart and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson were guests on The Undefeated Roundtable with Kelley L. Carter when the topic came up about Kaepernick.
“Kaep is a big headline right now,” said Hart. “So, some things you gotta just understand and onion peel off a headline. In other words, when you dig into it and show interest, it becomes a revolving world of non-stop conversation. I think either you are a supporter, and you want to see him play, or you have no interest in it anymore.”
“Yeah, it is so polarizing is what we are finding right now,” said Johnson. “Ultimately, we are athletes by nature and love the world of sports and all sports, but this one, in particular, obviously it’s a close one to us and also, it ultimately comes down to how badly do you want to play the game. On the business level for the owners, how badly do you want Kaep in the game? Because obviously, he can still ball.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter also pointed out that there also hasn’t been a single team to request a workout with Kaepernick.
“There hasn’t been a team that has requested a workout. There hasn’t been a team that has requested a visit. There hasn’t been a team that has expressed interest in signing him. So, despite the fact that one week ago we saw Colin Kaepernick work out at the high school down in the Atlanta area, it has not translated into any results, and though the league wanted to try to help out, at least said it was trying to help out, nothing’s come of it. Colin Kaepernick’s wait continues, and it looks like it’s going to be continuing for a very, very, very long time.”
